Over the Edge Radio

Negativland

Over The Edge Radio Archive (Seeland 031). Negativland's live mix radio show "Over The Edge" has been the longest-running block of free-form audio collage in radio history. With Negativland's Don Joyce at the helm, the weekly show was broadcast from KPFA FM in Berkeley California from 1981 to 2015. His death on July 22, 2015 closed a very large and long chapter in the group's history.

Here is how Don and Negativland described Over The Edge in texts drawn from over three decades of promoting the show:

"OTE's weekly themed mixes are made live and spontaneously on the air from a variety of formats and equipment used to do live sound cut ups and collage while mixing, including the frequent use of the now long dead analog technology of radio broadcast cart machines. On each themed episode of OTE there is a plan and there is no plan. Existing within the parallel universe of the Universal Media Netweb, the OTE mix consists of found sounds of many kinds from many sources put together on the run as the continuous audio collage progresses, along with live electronics (often from our Boopers), live sound processing, and all sorts of reccuring themes, topics and characters. Some of the shows involve all of Negativland, while some involve others outside of our group who participate semi-regularly. Beyond those, there are regular solo show broadcasts by Negativland member Don Joyce, who is the FCC license holder and responsible for filling the radio slot each week. All in all, if you like Negativland, you will like these shows, no matter who is involved, as they all maintain a "Negativ" touch based on our live mixing techniques. OTE often employs “Receptacle Programming,” which means you. Phone callers are punched into our mix with no warning. Call 510-848-4425 to deposit your programming. When your phone stops ringing, you’re on the air. Don’t say 'hello'."

A good overview of Over The Edge, Negativland, and Don Joyce's legacy can be found at this link.

Don's detailed 1995 essay about "Over The Edge."

For an informative bio on Negativland's past, present, and future, try this link.

Besides Negativland's many studio recordings, over the years a small selection of Over The Edge shows have been carefully edited into CD releases, often with elaborate packaging, and can be found here.

For updates on what the group is currently up to try Negativland's Facebook page.

NOTE 1: This archive began in September of 2015 by posting 941 three-to-five-hour-long episodes of Over The Edge from Don’s own personal air checks. That's over 3200 hours of live radio. There are still gaps in this archive to be filled over time (especially the early years. The 2015 shows will go live soon), so please contact Negativland at ote@negativland if you have any shows that we are missing. When you do, put "OTE" in the subject line. Our spam filters are set on high, and anything not having that tag will be junked. We're figuring that spam robots are not yet sophisticated enough to understand this paragraph, so we should be safe for a while.

NOTE 2: Individual show descriptions found here are mostly written by Don, but if a show description is missing and you’d like to contribute one, write it up as a "review" of the episode and let us know that you posted it. We are working on new and better ways to search this archive, and if you have ideas about that, drop us a line. And if you are that person who listens to every single show up here, however many years it takes you, please tell us!

NOTE 3: From 1981 to 1985, Over The Edge was on Sunday nights from 2am to 7pm. From 1985 onwards, the show has been on Thursday nights from midnight until either 3am or 5am, depending on which week of the month it was. The show was never on for the first week of each month, which is why there are never 52 shows in any given year.

NOTE 4: Though Over The Edge and Receptacle Programming continues to exist, evolve, and is still broadcasting each week on KPFA FM, this archive consists of the episodes helmed by Don Joyce. Once we have all of 2015 up, it will end on the episode broadcast immediately after his passing, "There Is No Don."

Our trio of guests play together without me for the first 45 minutes, then I join in the mix for the rest of the show. This is all an intense mashmix of The Beatles and everything they did in and out of music from beginning to end. Our sounds are made exclusively from Beatles material of all kinds and a few covers, including the amazing Rutles. A live and lively group mix that does not let up. -- Don Joyce

This large collection of skits and bits from Bob and Ray shows fills three hours with a minimum amount of mixing.

I have already been summoned by KPFA to explain this program and why it doesn't follow the language rules of radio. Three solid hours of Eminem music and Eminem talk, some of it edited for language and some not, which in contrast certainly points out how language censorship mutilates the music of Eminem to ruination if nothing else.

The California Super Station was Dick Vaughn's precursor programming to "Moribund Music Of The 70s." This is a combination of two CSS shows from '83 and '84. Although Dick's OTE CDs have all the records edited out, this is how it was done on the air with all the 70s cuts played in their entirety.

"Over the Edge" becomes "The Haunted Edge" as Don speaks from beyond the grave, electrocuted by a toaster, and offers "five hours to kill together". This mid-July show moves into a world (and afterworld) of the macabre, creepy and just plain strange. Blended together are stories by Poe, Lovecraft, Dickens, and a remarkably obscure sci-fi-horror work ("Cancrogregina") from the 1950s by Italian writer Tommaso Landolfi.

This "night school" teaches you about the origins of Noir in film while taking us along on a ride that starts with a femme fatale hitchhiker (from 1945's "Detour", a Noir classic) and journeys into Twin Peaks and Taxi Driver.

By the end of his career, he was talking almost exclusively about his own legal problems which, while tedious to some at the time, now...

The beginning of this show finishes off all the pirate radio material, domestic and foreign, and then we move on to more Congressional hearings on media control and indecency, Mr. Stern arrives on Sirius satellite radio, Firesign radio, and more.

Examples from the way the press USED to report this stuff, and numerous very convincing eyewitness reports, most by commercial airline pilots, which don't leave much doubt that there sure is SOMETHING out there in the air lanes that doesn't conform to anything that officialdom traditionally invokes to explain them. I like the pilot reports most of all because they are usually once or twice in a lifetime sightings and these people generally down to earth and know what they are looking at up...

"We give over 5 hours of programming to the Weatherman's house in Seattle where he and Dick send out their audio files via Shoutcast, and then we connect to Shoutcast and send them out via KPFA. This works great, with very clean sound, and we also get to hear the Weatherman go to the bathroom, wander around his garage, and all their other fully miked events in Seattle. Complicating the situation, we also have Richard manning a live phone on our air to bypass the Internet delay involved or...

In somewhat of a holdover from last week's subjects, we begin with a mix of several UFO investigators and the director of the made-for-TV movie, Roswell, discussing the various rumors and speculations concerning a film, supposedly made by the U.S. government in 1947, of the autopsy on the aliens recovered from the Roswell saucer crash. This rather suspicious film has recently surfaced in private hands in England, and the owner has been tantalizing media types with short clip screenings in an...

Due to the still fresh WTC events, I suspend any type of usual mix or theme and spend the night playing music and taking calls. Lots of talk with callers about everything happening, including a lengthy discussion of how stupid religion in general may or may not be. Receptacle programming throughout. -- Don Joyce

Dickie Diamond hosts a no-loser game for receptacle callers. Contestants punch the category button on their phone, the wheel is spun, and they win whatever it stops on. Categories are limited to ice cream, cars, and dates with rock stars. This innovative but never before tried format ends in technical chaos, and the show launches itself into space. There, we hear many parts of "Electric Life", an early 80s studio piece made mostly out of OTE from that period. The Weatherman and his...
